1292. Sent with a Rose to a Young Lady
 
By Margaret Deland
 
 
DEEP in a Rose’s glowing heart
  I dropped a single kiss,
And then I bade it quick depart,
  And tell my Lady this:
“The love thy Lover tried to send        5
  O’erflows my fragrant bowl,
But my soft leaves would break and bend,
  Should he send half the whole!”
